Find the median of the following data (18)
92, 35, 67, 85, 72, 81, 56, 51, 42, 69
Arranging the given data in ascending order, we have:
35, 42, 51, 56, 67, 69, 72, 81, 85, 92
Here, n = 10, which is even.
Hence, the median of the given data is 68.
Numbers 50, 42, 35, 2x + 10, 2x − 8, 12, 11, 8, 6 are written in descending order and their median is 25, find x.
Here, the number of observations n is 9. Since n is odd , the median is the observation, i.e. the 5^{th} observation.
As the numbers are arranged in the descending order, we therefore observe from the last.
Median = 5^{th} observation.
⇒ 25 = 2x 8
⇒ 2x = 25 +8
⇒ 2x = 33
⇒x = 33/2
⇒x = 16.5
Hence, x = 16.5.
Find the median of the following observations : 46, 64, 87, 41, 58, 77, 35, 90, 55, 92, 33. If 92 is replaced by 99 and 41 by 43 in the above data, find the new median?
Arranging the given data in ascending order, we have:
33, 35, 41, 46, 55, 58, 64, 77, 87, 90, 92
Here, the number of observations n is 11 (odd).
Since the number of observations is odd, therefore,
Median = Value of observation = Value of the 6^{th} observation = 58.
Hence, median = 58.
If 92 is replaced by 99 and 41 by 43, then the new observations arranged in ascending order are:
33, 35, 43, 46, 55, 58, 64, 77, 87, 90, 99.
∴ New median = Value of the 6^{th} observation = 58.
Find the median of the following data : 41, 43, 127, 99, 61, 92, 71, 58, 57, If 58 is replaced by 85, what will be the new median?
Arranging the given data in ascending order, we have:
41, 43, 57, 58, 61, 71, 92, 99,127
Here, the number of observations, n, is 9(odd).
∴ Median = Value of observation = Value of the 5^{th} observation = 61.
Hence, the median = 61.
If 58 is replaced by 85 , then the new observations arranged in ascending order are:
41, 43, 57, 61, 71, 85, 92, 99,12 .
∴ New median = Value of the 5^{th} observation = 71.
The weights (in kg) of 15 students are : 31, 35, 27, 29, 32, 43, 37, 41, 34, 28, 36, 44, 45, 42, 30. Find the median. If the weight 44 kg is replaced by 46 kg and 27 kg by 25 kg, find the new median.
Arranging the given data in ascending order, we have:
27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 37, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45.
Here, the number of observations n is 15(odd).
Since the number of observations is odd, therefore,
Median = Value of observation = Value of the 8^{th} observation = 35.
Hence, median = 35 kg.
If 44 kg is replaced by 46 kg and 27 kg by 25 kg , then the new observations arranged in ascending order are:
25, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 37, 41, 42, 43, 45, 46.
∴ New median = Value of the 8^{th} observation = 35 kg.
The following observations have been arranged in ascending order. If the median of the data is 63, find the value of x :
29, 32, 48, 50, x, x + 2, 72, 78, 84, 95
Here, the number of observations n is 10. Since n is even,
⇒63 = x+1
⇒x = 63−1 = 62.
Hence, x = 62.
